Overview

Organizational Behavior: An Experiential Approach / Edition 7

Now, more than 30 years in the making, this text has been thoroughly updated and revised to offer the latest theories, observations, and essential experiences in organizational behavior as studied from an experiential approach.

This text is focused on exercises, self-analysis techniques, and role-plays to make the insights of behavioral science meaningful and relevant to practicing managers and students. The text is organized into four parts, progressing from a focus on the individual to the group, the organization, and the organization-environment interface. No longer the passive recipient of information, this text turns students into the active creator of their own learning.
